We hope that you enjoy finding out about our wonderful school.
Following consultations with parents, carers, staff, governors and the local community, we are pleased to announce that both Cliff Park Infant and Cliff Park Junior Schools officially joined the Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) family network on 1 December 2018, becoming Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy and Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy.
East Anglia Schools Trust will therefore be dissolved.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school offices, as we’d be delighted to discuss this further with you. For more information about OAT, please visit their website at www.ormistonacademiestrust.co.uk.
We are a happy and caring school and offer an atmosphere where children are supported and challenged in their thinking, strive for continuous self- improvement, and have the desire to, and are given, the opportunities to develop the skills to become life-long learners.
At our school, we believe that it is our privilege and responsibility to inspire each and every one of our pupils to have high aspirations and to believe that they can and will achieve their dreams.
We are a ‘Learning without Limits’ school. We are determined that all children can and will achieve, and ensure that children learn within an enabling environment. We believe that everybody is important, everybody has a place and everybody learns from everybody else. We actively promote children’s choices and ownership of their learning. This means that we group children flexibly, facilitating children’s choices and offer our children a series of open challenges so that they can take control of their own learning and aim high, without any ceiling being placed upon what might be possible for them to achieve.
We recognise that every child’s learning journey is individual and we cater for and celebrate the diversity of learning styles and needs in every class.
We are all proud of our school, our wonderful children and their many successes. Our committed team work exceptionally well together to enrich learning experiences for our children.

We have regular parents’ evenings, learning themes, newsletters and updates on English and Maths to keep you informed.
